Our obsessions often serve as motivation to achieve our goals in life. But this week Junglee Home Video brings you a story of an obsession so great that it begins to erode the very fabric of life itself. Kshay, already a winner of 4 International film awards tells the story Chhaya, a simple unassuming housewife who is seemingly content in the life she shares with her husband Arvind. Until one day she catches sight of an unfinished idol of the Goddess Lakshmi and becomes besotted with owning it. Like an infection this obsession starts growing inside her and gradually, owning the idol becomes the only thing on her mind. It affects her peace, her marriage, her dreams and eventually her sanity. The film is a brilliant take on the frailty of our minds when driven by intangible desires. It has been dubbed as one of the best indie films India has seen in a long long time and become a benchmark for indie film-making It is now available in music and retail stores across India.
